I should have posted this here instead of at the openings topic.

Can someone help me figure out if this 26-22 line draws. It seems that 16-19 27-24 and 9-13 is the best attack but I am not sure. There are so many lines red can play I just dont know if they all draw.
Thanks,
Michael

There are more comments under the topic "Openings" rather than games as that is where I first posted this. Also, this line of play (26-22 and many of its variations) is in Ed's book10.odb that can be downloaded off his page. http://pages.prodigy.net/eyg/Checkers/BH_draws.htm
